Huh? I'm a registered Libertarian. I voted for Bob Barr, the Libertarian candidate. In general, libertarians tend to have their roots in conservatism, so those who feel that they don't want to "waste their vote" are more likely to vote for Republican candidates. The few studies that have been undertaken suggest that Libertarian Party candidates "steal votes" from Republicans, just as Green Party candidates steal them from Democrats. Ralph Nader is widely blamed for throwing the very close 2000 election to Bush. This is apparently one of the many things you don't understand about the United States. You're like Sam. You live somewhere else but you think you understand my country by reading a few internet boards. Or maybe, like her, you spent a couple of years here sequestered in an academic environment, so you swagger around saying, "Hey, I lived in the USA so I know all about it!" You don't have a clue about America.
